Lookin for black chrome wheels and tires for my 99 grand prix.. it's the final touch. I already tinted the windows and put my nice subs in with a JVC ADX1 head unit.. it's pretty sweet. The rims will finish the job and I'm really not looking to spend a lot :-D

You should figure out what offset you need also. If you dont you will end up with rims sticking out the side of your car If you dont you might end up needing to buy spacers. but if they are too wide you are out of luck. It is best to figure it out and buy rims that are close to your offset. I am not familiar with the Grand Prix so I don't know. You should be able to ask the rim dealer.

Back to the question. What look are you going for? Show or go? Anthracite rims look really cool. they are black in color but not too shiny. they dont weigh much.

Or you could ask GTPUSER. He has a Grand Prix GTP and has aftermarket rims on it.

I was thinking he would tell you what rims he had, and you cold stick with that sice. Besides, if you go to tirerack.com or similar, the should give you a list of rims that will fit your car.

Don't get the piece of crap excel wheels like I had, they quality is bad and the center caps started fading after a year.

For a Grand Prix, you really should look at the Eagle Alloy 077's, they look so good and the price is sweet. I should have bought those originally.

Edit: i dont think they come in black chrome though.
